Renowned kickboxing organization K-1 announced its first-ever open tryouts this week.
The event will take place at Muscle Beach in Los Angeles, California on Thursday, July 19 at 1:00 p.m. local time.
Those who participate in the tryouts will have the opportunity to earn a spot in K-1's 2012 series and a chance to compete for $2 million in prize money. That money will be divided among the top performers, including $1 million that will be awarded to the 2012 K-1 Heavyweight Grand Prix winner and $300,000 that will be awarded to the 2012 K-1 MAX tournament winner.
"K-1 would like to invite all talented stand-up fighters to come to Muscle Beach in LA on July 19 and show us what you have, and why you belong in the K-1 family," said Doug Kaplan, CEO of K-1. "K-1 is the gold standard in stand-up fighting, and we are searching for the best new athletes out there to represent K-1 and possibly become one of kickboxing's newest icons."
Fighters interested in signing up for the open tryouts can register by visiting the official K-1 Facebook page.
